BACKGROUND: Although bone grafts are commonly used in reconstructive surgeries, they are sensitive to local perfusion and are thus prone to severe resorption. Biphosphonates can inactivate osteoclasts and can be used to control the undesirable bone resorption. OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of administration of biphosphonates on bone resorption. METHODS: 20 patients with bony defects who were candidates for free autogenous grafts were randomized into "pamidronate" and "control" groups...

BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent cells with immunomodulatory effect on immune cells including dendritic cells (DCs). DCs are the most potent antigen-presenting cells (APC). MSCs have been found to modulate both differentiation and function of DCs. DCs express a broad range of Toll-like receptors (TLR), which play a critical role in DCs maturation and function. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate expression level of TLR3 and TLR9 transcripts in DCs following treatment with MSCs supernatant...

BACKGROUND: Interleukin-28 (IL-28B) rs12979860 C/T polymorphism is a known predictor of sustained virological response after antiviral treatment in hepatitis C. IL-28B affects the innate immune system as well as intrahepatic expression level of interferon-stimulated genes. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of recipient IL-28B polymorphism on occurrence of acute rejection after liver transplantation. METHODS: 140 liver allograft recipients were selected...

A Jafari, M R Khatami, S Dashti-Khavidaki, M Lessan-Pezeshki, A Abdollahi
BACKGROUND: Ischemic injury during organ transplantation increases the risk of acute and chronic rejections by promoting alloimmune responses. Measurement of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) immediately after kidney transplantation may be promising for early detection of ischemic injuries to allograft. OBJECTIVE: This study assessed possible predictive values of plasma NGAL levels during first hours after kidney transplantation for graft loss within the first 3 months after transplantation...

BACKGROUND: Reperfusion injury and the acid-base status of the transplant are important factors affecting post-transplantation graft function. OBJECTIVE: We hypothesized that infusing hypertonic saline (HS) or tight control of acid-base status of the blood rushing through renal graft using sodium bicarbonate may have beneficial effects on early graft function. METHODS: Candidates for deceased-donor kidney transplant were randomized into three groups...

REVIEW
B Geramizadeh, S A Malek-Hosseini
A successful liver transplantation team consists of several specialists to work closely together. The histopathologist (anatomical pathologist) is one of the key players in this multidisciplinary team. This role starts with the pre-transplantation evaluation of the recipient's liver by diagnosis or confirming the underlying liver disease and continues with the evaluation of the explanted recipient's liver for any further information about the underlying liver disease including malignancies such as hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, or any other incidental findings...

Middle East, with more than 650 million inhabitants, has one the lowest mean donation rate in the world in the context of organ procurement from deceased donors with <2 per million population as actual deceased organ donation rate in 2014. Tissue processing and transplantation in this region are also restricted to a few countries among those representing Middle East Society for Organ Transplantation. Aiming to promote human tissue processing and transplantation in this region, as a life-enhancing therapeutic modality, we have to share our know-how and facilities in order so that the patients in different countries gain almost equal benefit of this vital procedure...

Knowledge of the renal vascular anatomy greatly contributes to the success of surgical, invasive and radiological procedures of the retroperitoneal region. In today's era of transplant, this knowledge is of utmost importance in performing donor nephrectomy so that number of fatal intra-operative complications can be prevented. Herein, we report on a rare anomaly of left renal vein in which dual retro-aortic left renal veins were noted and one of them drained into the left common iliac vein.

BACKGROUND: Derivation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from various adult somatic cells through over-expression of pluripotent genes could allow for the unlimited autologous supply in regenerative medicine. On the other hand the generation of various progenitors from bone-marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is justly well established. OBJECTIVE: In this study we compared the expression level of pluripotent genes oct4, c-myc, sox-2, nanog, klf4 and lin28 in iPSCs and MSCs derived from bone marrow...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial performance index (MPI) or Tei index is a Doppler-derived index of combined systolic and diastolic myocardial function, calculated as the sum of isovolumetric relaxation time (IRT) and isovolumetric contraction time (ICT) divided by the ejection time (ET). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the right and left ventricular systolic and diastolic function using MPI in children before and after liver transplantation. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted on 30 children with liver cirrhosis before liver transplantation, 30 age-matched comparison group at least 6 months after liver transplantation, and 30 aged-matched children without history of heart disease in Nemazi Liver Transplant Center, Shiraz, Iran, from April 2012 to April 2014...

BACKGROUND: Splitting a liver for utilization in adult/pediatric recipients has been shown to decrease mortality on the wait list without increasing the overall risk of long-term graft failure compared to a whole graft. However, splitting a single donor organ for two adult recipients, full-right-full-left split liver transplantation (FRFLSLT), to overcome organ shortage is still considered controversial. OBJECTIVE: This study assessed the outcome of FRFLSLT comparing full-right (FR) and full-left (FL) with whole liver (WL) allografts in adults (1998-2010) using UNOS standard transplant analysis and research (STAR) file...

World Kidney Day 2016 focuses on kidney disease in childhood and the antecedents of adult kidney disease that can begin in earliest childhood. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) in childhood differs from that in adults, as the largest diagnostic group among children includes congenital anomalies and inherited disorders, with glomerulopathies and kidney disease in the setting of diabetes being relatively uncommon. In addition, many children with acute kidney injury will ultimately develop sequelae that may lead to hypertension and CKD in later childhood or in adult life...

Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome is a rare but potentially life-threatening hypersensitivity reaction characterized by widespread erythematous skin eruptions with fever, lymphadenopathy and visceral involvement-hepatitis, nephritis, pericarditis, and pneumonitis. There are numerous reports describing the management of such patients in intensive care units but hardly any describing the intraoperative anesthetic management of such patients. Herein, we report on a patient with DRESS syndrome who was scheduled for renal transplantation...

Left-sided inferior vena cava (IVC) is the second most common anatomical anomaly of the IVC after duplication. Herein, we present two cases of left-sided IVC, diagnosed during organ retrieval procedure. In a young brain-dead man, a single left-sided IVC was observed; it originated from iliac confluence in the left side of the aorta and extended throughout the abdomen. There was no retrohepatic IVC in the patient; hepatic veins drained directly into the right atrium. The second case was a brain-dead young woman with a left-sided IVC originated from iliac confluence to the kidney level; then, the IVC crossed anterior to the abdominal aorta to join a normally positioned retrohepatic IVC...

BACKGROUND: Although lung transplantation is a well-accepted treatment for end-stage lung diseases patients, only 15%-20% of the brain-dead donors' lungs are usable for transplantation. This results in high mortality of candidates on waiting lists. Ex-vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is a novel method for better evaluation of a potential lung for transplantation. OBJECTIVE: To report the first experience of EVLP in Iran. METHODS: The study included a pig in Vienna Medical University, Vienna, Austria, and 4 humans in Masih Daneshvari Hospital, Tehran, Iran...
